Beaumont students affirm research that an all-girls environment empowers young women to excel as students and leaders. As a member of the International Coalition of Girls' School, Beaumont challenges young women to develop their talents as they:
- have greater academic achievement
- score higher on college admissions tests
- have higher confidence in STEM subject areas, including mathematics and computer skills
- feel more confident and empowered
90% feel supported by other students (vs. 73% of girls at coed schools)
95% of students in all-girls high schools feel supported by their teachers (vs. 84% of girls at coed schools)
83% feel supported by their school administrators (vs. 63% of girls at coed schools)
All-girls learning environments champion the educational needs of girls currently underrepresented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) majors and careers.
Girls’ school graduates are 6 times more likely to consider majoring in math, science, and technology.
Compared to coeducated peers, girls’ school graduatess are 3 times more likely to consider engineering careers.
Girls at all levels of achievement in the single-sex schools receive a benefit from the environment in terms of heightened career aspirations—an effect unprecedented in any other portion of our study.
